In the face of an unprecedented "global storm", the Caspian Sea is becoming an important topic of discussion because of its geostrategic location, its rich natural resources, and its unique transit potential. The signing of the Convention on the Legal Status of the Caspian Sea after many years of negotiations, which laid a solid legal foundation for the comprehensive strengthening of five-sided cooperation, is clear proof of this.

Unified tariffs, no bottlenecks

I believe that we should jointly and promptly solve urgent organizational issues. This concerns timely approval of mutually acceptable and unified tariffs and the elimination of bottlenecks. Special attention should also be paid to the further development of the promising North-South corridor. For this purpose, it is possible to make maximum use of the railroad "Kazakhstan - Turkmenistan - Iran", which is the shortest route between East Asia and the Persian Gulf countries.
